Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

On the Lincoln Center redevelopment project and the destruction of community on New York City's Upper West Side. With many shots of Puerto Ricans and their neighborhood, seemingly with direct sound.

Description from Roz Payne archives:

To keep the well-to-do from continuing to flee the city and depleting its tax base, city, state, and federal government, and the Rockefellers, Morgans, and Mellons finance the prestigious Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. It was built in the middle of a Puerto Rican ghetto, displacing thousands of families and a lively street culture. Upper-income families move into high-rise apartment houses and gourmandise the "humanities," financially inaccessible and culturally irrelevant to the lives of the former residents.

Subject: Culture is bad
Seemingly grass-roots put together film about how the rich are so rich that they need to displace us poor people with their big old theatres that attract nothing but rich people! Think of the poor people! While I agree that there's a place for this sort of thing, this film is pretty cut and dry with it's "rich people are bad" rhetoric. Almost amusing.
